Since GM of Canada has the records for these cars, it shouldn't be too difficult to decode once you get enough plates.
Then again, why bother if you have the GM Canadian DOC's

Here is another random Canadian POP off the web. It has an extra field with BCD.

It could have sat on the lot for a while. Could have been driven by an employee or family member or the owner of the dealership.


08A 1966 car first sold on 3/15/67

I can't imagine a Camaro sitting unsold at a dealership for very long in 1966/67. They where in big demand!
Maybe it was the dealers promo, personal, or demo car.

trim tag from this car:

That's what the first owner got, in place of the metal P-O-P that was delivered with U.S.-purchased cars; it was issued by GM of Canada-Oshawa, and mailed to the new car owner. Note the paragraph below the card where it talks about receiving the card in the mail.

So what happens to the metal POP placed in the car at the factory? Are they not made up for cars slated for export to Canada?

Is there such a thing as second owner warranty plates for Canadian cars like there is for domestic cars?

Is there any decoding information for the Canadian POP's?

Thanks for your response. CRG data on POP's is pretty thin.

Saw this POP over at Team Camaro.
Is this the type reissued to the second owner under warranty?
Must have been one of the first V8's into Canada with such a low VIN

That bright shiny trim tag was not there in the previous auction

I keep forgeting printed text shows no expression...just being facetious Ragtop. In other words, I agree with you 99.999%.



LOL, sorry my sarcasm detector must have been turned down last night. I can usually detect that.

I do have a good idea for acquiring this car at a reasonable price with this particular seller. I got the idea after reading the keywords in the Camaro sellers advertisement and a post on TC.

Just buy this El Camino from the Doritos commercial off EBay and offer to trade it straight up for the Camaro! No Hillbilly could resist this awesome opportunity!

Sounds like it'll go for pennies on the dollar; "There is ONE person out there with enough money".

Sure hope its one of our members.

It does NOT sound like pennies on the dollar to me. I am not sure how you interpereted the ad...

I don't think anyone here is interested in dealing with that kind of seller. At least until he gets a reality check.
53  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Rare find '69 Z28 on: August 09, 2012, 04:12:51 PM
Wonder what he's asking for this "not cheep" one of a kind? 75K???

Jimmy V.

Well, he was asking 65K when he thought "NONE or your buddies has anything like this... " but now that y'all have posted about it being a rare color the price may go even higher. After all, "This is a very rare once in a lifetime oppertunity to own what everyone else can only dream of."

Champagne might be a rare color, but it's not what I dream of. Maybe it's kind of rare for a reason. Like the same reason it was repainted red.

54  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: ebay item 160839900523 on: July 09, 2012, 11:44:21 PM
That is why I am not sure about buying it, my thought is it may have been stolen.  It also looks to have had vinly top at one time,  no top color on trim tag, not sure if trim tag has been changed or vin has been changed. allthough it dose not seem like the type of car that someone would change trim tag! If trim tag was changed I would buy it but not vin.

That's not factory vinyl top trim. See how it does not go below the rear window? It was added aftermarket.

Is that written anywhere on CRG?

If not, maybe you should add it.

Let me simplify my question, regardless of the car on Ebay.

Could anyone have ordered Houndstooth interior in a 1968 Convertible?

I see no information on CRG that says you could not.

CRG and my White Book clearly state that houndstooth was not available in a 1969 convertible, except for pace cars.
There is no mention of availability or restrictions in a 1968 convertible. Could this tag be real?

58  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Did 1968 cars with AC get Astro Ventilation door glass? on: June 09, 2009, 07:23:57 PM
Date code is AX10, September 1968.
It's a September 1967 built car, so it looks like the glass is not original and explains why it does not have the Astro Ventilation printed on it.
Although technically, AC cars don't have Astro Ventilation.

59  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Did 1968 cars with AC get Astro Ventilation door glass? on: June 08, 2009, 10:13:55 PM
I always thought my early 09E LOS Camaro should have Astro Ventilation glass, but it doesn't.
Then I realized, it's an AC car, it doesn't actally have Astro Ventilation, maybe thats why it's not printed on the glass.
Did AC cars get Astro Ventilation printed on the glass?

So you can rent a 2010 Camaro from Budget, but my local dealer has only delivered 1 so far, has zero in inventory, and no idea when he will get another one.
Interesting marketing strategy GM!
